Parachute Drop ?????

I built a plane, for fpv and to drop parachutists. To be able to control a servo with a swich on my remote do I have to get a 5 or 6 channel receiver for the extra servo, or can i put it in another spot on a 4 channel.

Would the elevator slot work because my plane uses alirons as elevators.

there was a guy on the hz supercub forum who used ACT to operate flaps. thats the most extreme i ever heard of - and pretty cool.

You can also piggy back a servo into a used channel. Just make sure that the servo for the drop has to make full travel to open the bay, and then when ready to drop, a short full up elevator will make it release. Takes a little setup, but I have done it many times for the lack of extra channels. Roy
